Who are Las Vegas Lights?
Las Vegas Lights are one of American football's newest teams. Founded by Las Vegas resident Brett Lashbrook and his family, with the goal of bringing pro football to Southern Nevada.
 
Lashbrook has been involved in the game for years with multiple roles within business operations. He's worked at Orland City, the United Soccer League, Major League Soccer and more.
 
The vision of the Las Vegas Lights is to create a new standard for operating a community focused professional soccer franchise in the United States.

 
Fans are very much at the forefront of this club. The name Las Vegas Lights FC was chosen by a fan vote after more than 10 thousand votes.
 
After the name was locked in fans submitted design inspiration ideas and concepts for the logo. Designed in the shape of the famous “Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas” sign and features neon tubing font. The team colors (light blue, yellow & pink) were used due to their being the official colors of the City of Las Vegas.

The team plays as the very aesthetically pleasing Cashman Field which has a capacity of 12.5 thousand. It was originally built as a baseball stadium back in 1940 but is now a full-time football venue for the Lights to call home. After a renovation back in 2019, this will be the base for the team to grow for years to come.
In their debut season the Lights currently sit 6th on the table. We'll be keeping a close eye on them all season. Hopefully we'll be there one day to support the team. Who could say no to a Vegas away day?
 
As discussed in our recent article, Barcelona-based brand Meyba will be the be the apparel and technical supplier of the club. The debut Las Vegas Lights home and away jerseys are some of the best we've seen for a long time. Both are available in stores and online at ultrafootball.com.
